One Week in Fostercare

 It’s amazing what one week can do :) well three days really, because that is what it took for her to start feeling like a real animal again. She still sleeps a lot and is very quite. I don’t think I explained a lot about her in my last post because I was, well mad. Honestly I am still bothered by the fact that so little was done for her. She could have been so much further in her recovery with proper care.  Her name is Little Lamb and by all figuring she is a double Merle or “lethal white” Australian Shepherd puppy. She is now about 4 months old the best we can tell. She has some vision issues and hearing issues which is very common with dogs like her. Although she does see and hear to some extent she will require a special home. Her skin is pure pink and her hair pure white, she has blue eyes that will melt your heart ❤️ she is sweet and calm by puppy standards.  She is still pretty itchy but it gets better every day, her fever has broke and she is eating like a monster. It is hard t

Mangy Little Lethal White Aussie

 Something I will never understand is how people can allow their animals to have puppies, watching them grow, and dumping them to die. I’ve been in rescue a long time and yet every day someone new surprises me with their heartlessness.  I’ve sat here the last 5 days thinking about a puppy I saw on a rescue page. Covered in fleas and ticks, most of her hair missing from mange. She was sunburn and filled with infection. It had been 5 days, surely she’s feeling better? Has a loving foster home? I reached out to the rescue for an update since I knew who owned it. I was shocked when she was in boarding not a home 😭 I decided she needed to come stay with us and heal.  A week has passed now and I picked her up, she’s terrified and weak. Barely able to muster the energy to crawl from her cage I try to hide my anger. Not at her but at the entire world that had failed her so badly the past few months. The shelter when she was picked up gave her the treatment for mange, and the rescue a bath, bu

Waffle Sticks

With just a little pancake or muffin mix you can quickly make a fun handheld treat for your littles, or little at hearts.  You can your one HERE   I will be creating more with this pan so stay tuned for fun ideas with this and other Pampered Chef Products!

So Many Changes, Where Do We Go?

It’s pretty crazy I started this blog years ago as a way to really help support my family. There was a lot of product reviews, paid ads,  articles that I never really read through but kind of copied and paste it, all as a way to help support my family. Over the last two years it’s kind of become a place where I can come and write my thoughts, no one who knows me I think even reads it anymore, so I feel like it’s a place where I can go, where there’s no judgment. No comments about maybe I should’ve done something different with my life. All those years in college and never use a degree, money spent, money wasted. Over the last year we really found a lot I feel like in our home in Bosque Farms. We found happiness and peace, and most importantly I feel like we’ve learned love and beauty again. Over the last four months things have been pretty crazy if you think about it. The world is in a pandemic like they haven’t seen in over 100 years. People have died alone, healed alone, and lived a

Facing a New....Reality....?

    It’s insane to think that two weeks ago life went on in its own hectic. We rushed about from work and back. We hit the gym, then the store.....waking up before 5 am every day to start the cycle again. The kids thankfully were on spring break, which only really meant one less stop on this crazy train.     Slowly a new virus started to push our way....I don’t think life got slower at that point. Perhaps more surreal would be a better explanation of it. We still did the things we normally did, but maybe with a bit more precaution. We wiped our machines down at the gym a bit more, we washed our hands and extra time but life went on. Then the schools announced they were closing for three weeks......ok we’ve homeschooled before we will do what we can. We awaited word of work closing, but, whether by the grace of God or bad luck work went on. The environment was odd to say the least. Everyone taking added precautions to ensure their own health. Nerves were short, tension was so thick we
